External Batch number Mandatory


I have a requirement in Global rollout project , whereinternal batch numbers are activated for all other plants.

But for a specific plant we need to use the External Batch number during Good Receipt of Purchase Order and Production order ( with Final operation confirmation using AUTO GR control key )

Although we can put the external batch every time , but requirement is to make this mandatory for this plant mean system should give ask for error batch number or throw error if no external number has been entered..

Second reuirement <b>( for production order GR only )</b> with this external batch number input check the first 8 digits should match with Prodcution Order number follwed by 2 alphabatic digits ..

e.g. ig my production Order number is 17001899 , external batch number should be 17001899A , 17001899B ..and so on ( if this is served by internal batch number also , it'll serve my purpose but only for production Orders.

Can you pl share your thougthts..abot this..

Thanks in advance

Your first rquirement may not be possible as the batch numbering being maintained globally client wise.

If this is not possible & the second one may not be feasible.
